All Day Breakfast was fab and the best coffee I've had in a while. The place was fairly busy. Didn't have any interaction with the staff so can't comment.

VERY VERY tiny for a W/spoons. Good cheap beer and usual quality grub. Let down by lack of attention to toilets. However John and Kim go over and above the call of duty.

almost in the centre of Otley the meals are good & reasonably priced with the advantage of outdoor seating on a lovely summers day!

This is a Weatherspoons pub. You know exactly what to expect and it does not disappoint. Standard Weatherspoons menu and range of beers. Standard Weatherspoons service. Standard Weatherspoons value for money. Bur where else is there to eat in Otley on a Sunday evening?
